Has anyone found a way to Lock the Stow and Go compartments? I would like to do that when I have to leave my car in the dealer for example.

I don’t understand. Are you worried that someone will take stuff out or put something in...? Why do you leave valuables in the storage area when the car is in service? They have the keys anyway.
If I have a concern, then I would keep the seats stowed so that no one messes with the seats and it guarantees them that there isn’t anything valuable down there. :D.

I'm thinking about using those compartments as safe storage when needed if I could lock them someway. Sometimes you need to leave valuables in your car, do not question the reasons, take that as a fact.

4 or 5 bags of sand on top of each compartment is the only easy thing I can think of that does not involve drilling holes in the floor.
Very funny >:) They may still the sand ;)

Leave a Rottweiler in the car...:grin2:

I sure you could put a lock like on a tool chest drawer with minimal effort.

That's a great idea, I will have to look into it tomorrow.
Locking the Stow and Go compartment, not the Rottweiler
Welcome to the forum.
If you put your van info in the signature line of the UserCP it will show up at the bottom of each post and make it easier for others to assist you if you have questions.

You could buy WeatherTech mats like I did...then your Stow & Go compartments will be truly inaccessible.:laugh:
Wow! The whole idea is to be able to access them at will and lock them when you need. If you are stopping for one night in a motel or inn, you do not want to take all you bags with you for just one night. So, you could lock them on those compartments. Something to make the life of thieves miserable by making them work a little bit if they want to steal from you.

First of all, the very idea of stow and go cargo bins is awesome since it is partially hidden anyway. To access it quickly you really need to know what you are doing. If there is a stiff weather mat on it and on top of it some bags are luggage are there, no thief in his right mind would think about an overly complicated way to steal something which he hopes would be there.
Thieves want quiet, simply, quick, and easy stuff to do when they have an opportunity and get of the area.
Has anyone ever had their stuff stolen from stow and go bins (including grand caravan, T&C and Pacifica).

I think it would be a good idea to have the option of locking Stow and Go bins. @ChryslerCares, maybe you can pass the idea on to the design people.
